  • Choosing the correct data acquisition step for GPR

    Before GPR surveying we have to set Step of acquisition in Synchro program settings. We got different GPR profiles with different values of Step of acquisition. Often we choose the smallest Step of acquisition to have the more detailed GPR profiles. In this article we will share our ideas about choosing the optimal Step of acquisition for VIY3 GPR. We hope this will help you ...

  • The Future of Data Acquisition: Will the Internet`s Cloud-Computing Replace the Data Logger?

    Electronic data loggers have been integral instrument in automation of data collection since their inception with widespread adoption beginning in the 1980’s. Data loggers are used across a variety of industries requiring automated data collection – applications include remote water resource monitoring, weather conditions, machine monitoring, gas and oil projects, building HVAC ...

  • On the right track

    High-speed train manufacturer, CAF, rely on world-class beamforming technology to reduce the noise generated by their trains – helping to make high-speed trains a more viable option for travellers and operators alike. Because of its relatively low levels of CO2 emissions, train travel is considered one of the ...

  • Autonomous data acquisition system for Paks NPP process noise signals

    A prototype of a new concept noise diagnostics data acquisition system has been developed recently to renew the aged present system. This new system is capable of collecting the whole available noise signal set simultaneously. Signal plugging and data acquisition are performed by autonomous systems (installed at each reactor unit) that are controlled through the standard plant network from a ...

  • DL3000’s Direct Link Between Remote Data Acquisition and Web-Based Data Analysis and Control

    Stevens’ DataLogic 3000 (DL3000) is available with a built-in TCP/IP stack to easily interface to a standard Internet connection directly via Ethernet or cell modem. Once connected, the data can be processed and analyzed on-line using the Stevens-Connect data management service or user customized data management program. Such information can be incorporated with other web services for enhanced, ...

  • EPA Method 8270D Analysis Using Narrow-bore GC Columns and Fast Data Acquisition with a Quadrupole GCMS System

    Analytical support of environmental programs has been conducted for several decades using standard-bore capillary columns (0.25mmid) and quadrupole GCMS systems. Depending on method conditions and program requirements, the QC measures can consume a significant portion of a 12-hour shift, leaving less time for analysis of real-world samples. Typical cycle times (time from beginning of a run to the ...

  • GE expands smart grid offering through acquisition of Opal Software

    GE Energy (Atlanta, GA) has moved to strengthen its offering in the smart grid infrastructure market through the acquisition of Australia-based Opal Software, a specialist in data migration and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) simulation. “Opal Software’s products and project management services are integral to the delivery of GE Energy projects,” said ...

  • Technology acquisition decision making revisited: lessons learned in an age of environmental uncertainty

    High technology medical innovation remains implicated as one of the most significant driving forces behind the high costs of health care in the USA. In addition, health care organisations are faced with an increasingly complex and uncertain environment. How do these factors interrelate to affect decisions made to acquire high cost medical technology? Data was collected from hospitals in three ...

  • Southwest's acquisition of AirTran: an analysis of short–term stock performance

    This paper examines the short–term stock performance of Southwest Airlines and AirTran Airways using time series data consisting of daily and cumulative abnormal returns ± 60 trading days around the merger announcement and merger completion dates. The impact of Southwest's announcement to acquire AirTran is positive. The daily abnormal returns of Southwest and AirTran, using the S&P 500 as index, ...

  • Social network ties and resource acquisition: evidence from China`s transitional economy

    Based on the system perspective, we develop a theoretical model for the relationship between social network (SN) ties and resource acquisition (RA) and examine how environmental dynamism (ED) moderates this relationship, then conduct empirical analysis using data of 326 new firms Jilin province of China. The result suggests that SN ties have positive effects on external RA and internal resource ...

  • Absorptive capacity, network embeddedness and local firm's knowledge acquisition in the Global Manufacturing Network

    Global Manufacturing Network (GMN) is an innovative manufacturing system that provides great opportunities for local firms in developing countries to acquire knowledge and upgrade through collaborations in GMN. Using data of manufacturing firms, we confirm the conceptual model that local firm's absorptive capacity can contribute to its knowledge acquisition and performance in the context of GMN. ...

  • Mergers and acquisitions and the determinants of bank total factor productivity: empirical evidence from Malaysia

    In this paper, we employ alternate techniques to examine the impact of mergers and acquisitions on banks total factor productivity. These alternate techniques extend from use of the non-parametric, 'frontier'-oriented method of Malmquist Productivity Index (MPI) and include the more traditional regression-based approaches using central tendency estimates. Using data from the Malaysian banking ...

  • Irreversible destruction of collected data with overgaining

    Introduction Recently we have encountered a growing amount of GPR users asking for help with the interpretation of their data. Most of this requests were based on a presumption that a more skilled user will be able to interpret more out of the collected data. However, the problem was not in the lack of interpretation skills, but rather with the lack of data acquisition knowledge. Most of the ...

  • Basic tests for checking validity of field data

    The following guidelines are suggested for verifying micrometeorological data gathered in field experiments. It is assumed, for simplicity, that the observations being tested are made over open, relatively flat and uniform terrain, with small roughness elements. It is also assumed that the sensors and the data acquisition and recording hardware are basically sound and that the purpose of the ...

  • Isatis manages several million data sets

    Through the years, Geovariances has always endeavored to improve Isatis performances to answer their client constraints related to the always increasing size of their data sets. Most of the algorithms in Isatis are thus optimized and parallelized to run on multi-threaded computers and decrease computation time in a significant manner. ...

  • Improved real-time data anomaly detection using context classification

    The number of automated measuring and reporting systems used in water distribution and sewer systems is dramatically increasing and, as a consequence, so is the volume of data acquired. Since real-time data is likely to contain a certain amount of anomalous values and data acquisition equipment is not perfect, it is essential to equip the SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system ...
